sister, mother, sister -- who's right? the bears at goldman, smart. the bulls -- the bulls at credit suisse, all right, little spoiler alert here, everybody. my charitable trust owns masco, so guess what conclusion i'm going to reach? but, anyway, because you're going to have to sort through conflicting opinions to decide whether or not to buy a stock, i want to go through the negative research by goldman sachs. it was high quality, shows you why i think the bulls are right, i hope. first, though, a little background on this company called masco. one of the leading players in home building products with iconic brands including delta faucets, craft made cabinets, bear paint among many others. 70% of the sales come from the united states, most of the remaining comes from europe. small but not insignificant 4% yield and up 29% year-to-date and that's not too shabby.
